    I liked it better than Dickens Great Expectations Honestly, I sometimes feel like I don t fully grasp some of the classics until I ve read these weird versions Still, there was way too much of Dickens writing left in it, so that I felt I was wading through the story instead of enjoying it What was easy to read in then isn t now.

    I was apprehensive about this book when I first bought it on sale I don t usually go for this kind of thing I expected a rather large cheese factor, which I hate but what a surprise it was to me The writing is excellent It dovetails absolutely perfectly with the original The writing is consistent with Dickens style and beautifully so I enjoyed the take on including vampires and werewolves a hundred times than I ever thought I would It made the whole London scene even atmospheric and interesting I absolutely adore this book Well done

    Readers the world over will thank authoress Sherri Browning Erwin for her lighthearted, furred, and fanged journey into the world of Dickens This is not to say that her version is meant to eclipse the original just to be a palatable kin that the reader will invite to stay and to whom the three day guest rule will never apply See the rest of my review at

    Hopefully this fad will receive a stake through the heart AND silver bullet soon.

    This is a supernatural parody of Great Expectations, written around the same time as Pride and Prejudice And Zombies One clever thing about this book is that, while there are werewolves, zombies, and vampires aplenty, you can plainly see the spirit of Great Expectations underneath Sherri Browning Erwin somehow managed a fun twist on a classic that keeps the story fresh and acts almost as a guide through some of the slower moving parts of the original book.I actually enjoyed this much than Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, possibly because I like Great Expectations, while not being a fan of Pride and Prejudice I think that reading Great Expectations for the first time, followed by Grave Expectations would make for a cool compare and contrast In fact, I might have my oldest whom I homeschool do that next year.It s not the most amazing reworking of a classic that I ve ever read, but it is a solid, fun book It s also a quick read, one that s perfect when you only have time to read in bits and spurts.Full review

    Not as good as Jane Slayre by a long shot but better by far than Great Expectations This makes the latter readable and enjoyable but like Pride, Prejudice and Zombies it is difficult to overcome the source material It my opinion, thus far, Jane Slayre is the best in this mixed genre of classics and horror.

    While Grave Expectations isn t laugh out loud humorous like the first supernatural classic mashups, the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies series, it is still an enjoyable take on Dickens 1860 novel Based on my one brief encounter with Dickens writing David Copperfield this version is much less tedious and confusing than the original, too While the werewolves, vampires, and zombies play clear roles in the story, Dickens original purpose in writing the novel shines through should readers bother to think about it This makes Grave Expectations both a nice alternative for reluctant readers struggling through Dickens prose though of course it cannot completely replace reading the actual Great Expectations and a cool, creative companion piece to for anyone who actually made it through the 1860 novel Though the middle part of the book did seem to lag in plot I blame Dickens for that , the majority of the book was interesting, and it appeared that Erwin sticks to the original plot pretty well In the world of classic monster mashups, Grave Expectations falls in between completely fun Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and the rather boring, didn t really change much novels Huckleberry Finn and Zombie Jim I often managed to forget that I was reading a parody of another novel, which is always a good sign for the viability of books based on other books.Disclaimer I received my copy of this book from the publisher in return for an honest review.

    Pip Pirrip definitely didn t have an easy start in life.You see he is a werewolf whose mother and father are dead So he was raised by his older sister Mrs Joe Gargery who he calls Mrs Joe She is a harsh woman who rules with an iron fist, or should I say with a silver tipped cane she likes to call the Tickler Pip hunts escaped convicts while also trying to hide his wolfish tendencies from the girl he has fallen in love with, but when he learns that his lady love is actually someone that slays supernatural creatures you can t help but wonder how things will work out for Pip Will love prevail, or will Pip s lady love be the end of him Having never read Charles Dickens Great Expectations,I was anxious to read this supernatural spin on the classic, but overall for me it was just an okay read I found myself rereading parts of it to grasp the language that was used.Once I got into the groove of the story, it moved along quite well, and I did enjoy the characters.I thought it was interesting that in this story vampires were considered civilized and welcome in society while werewolves weren t While I would consider this book a middle of the road read for me, I think it will appeal to a wide audience, from anyone who enjoys their classic tales rewritten with a paranormal twist, to fans who enjoy werewolves,vampires and the conflict that goes along with slayers wanting to eradicate supernatural beings.

    Grave Expectations is a new paranormal retelling of Great Expectations I love these recent adaptations of the classics Sherri Browning Erwin takes the old characters Pip, now a were wolf, and Estelle turned slayer, Erwin turns our classics upside down.I love the snark inherit in Erwin s book Both Jane Slayer and now Grave Expectations had been fabulous reads for me There is this great lot of dark description in the novel and it give the scenery of the book a whole new feel One minute we are rooting for Pip, and another sympathizing with Estelle.If you like your classics in a whole new light, then Grave Expectations will really surprise.I enjoyed reading this one immensely and have fun comparing the passages between this adaptation and the original.
